ZZ Top’s Shreveport Show Is Now Postponed
Well, now it's official.
After days of rumors, and of radio stations trying to stay positive, this weekend's ZZ Top show at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium has been postponed. Here is a snip from the press release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Shreveport, LA) – April 20, 2016 – Last Thursday, Dusty Hill was injured at the Lone Star Events Center in Lubbock, Texas that prevented the evening's ZZ Top performance from taking place. Dusty has subsequently undergone treatment for a fractured shoulder. ZZ Top's concert dates on the current tour have been postponed through May 7, 2016.
TICKETS THAT HAVE BEEN PURCHASED FOR THE ZZ TOP April 24, date will be honored at the RESCHEDULED DATE OF OCTOBER 16th 2016.
Carl Stubner, the band's manager, reported, "Dusty was suited up and ready to go when he tripped on a step while on his way to the stage for the start of Thursday's show. It was very dark back there and the step - really a half-step - wasn't lit so there's no way he could've seen it. We found out that others had missed it and stumbled earlier in the day. Maybe some strategic lighting could've prevented this, but that's water under the bridge. What's important now is that Dusty and his medical team to do what's necessary for a complete recovery."
